“What an honour to be among such wonderful women on the W100! The talent is immense and I’m pleased to see my fellow TechWomen Canada alumna, Tara Kelly of Splice Software Inc., also gracing the list. Thank you to PROFIT Magazine and Chatelaine for the opportunity and recognition.”
Ranking Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs on a composite score based on the size, growth rate and profitability of their businesses, the W100 profiles the country’s most successful female business owners. Published in the November issue of PROFIT and the December issue of Chatelaine and online at PROFITguide.com and chatelaine.com, the W100 is Canada’s largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women.
“This year’s W100 are a dream group of ambitious, forward-thinking entrepreneurs who defy outdated notions of female entrepreneurship,” said Ian Portsmouth, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of PROFIT. “They are running sophisticated and sizeable businesses in challenging industries, and finding new ways to operate and innovate for growth and sustainability.”
